Starting XI: Pirates v Celtic

DStv Premiership

Teams: Orlando Pirates v Bloemfontein Celtic

Date: 02 March 2021

Venue: Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates will aim to pick up three points when they host Bloemfontein Celtic in a DStv Premiership clash on Tuesday.

The Buccaneers are currently fourth on the standings having won seven of their 18 league matches this campaign.

The Soweto side also come off a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Maritzburg United in the Nedbank Cup this weekend although in their last league game they drew 1-1 with SuperSport United.

Pirates will be without Thabang Monare for the clash as the midfielder picked up his fourth booking of the season against Maritzburg and will therefore serve a one-game suspension.

Celtic, meanwhile, are 11th in the standings having won four of their 17 games while they have only scored 17 goals in the process.

Siwelele, who come off a 1-0 defeat to TS Galaxy in their last outing, will be without the services of Cyril Lingwati and Tshepo Rikhotso through suspension.

Here's how they line up:

Pirates: 31. Ofori, 14. Hlatshwayo, 4. Jele, 8. Ndlovu, 29. Mako, Motshwari, 15. Makaringe, 18. Dlamini, 11. Hotto, 45. Pule, 31. Mntambo.

Subs: 40. Mpontshane, 36. Sesane, 34. Tshobeni, 26. Muwowo, 19. Sam, 9. Mabasa, 7. Mhango, 5. Nyauza, 2. Monyane

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 35. Baloyi, 33. Chabalala, 26. Ngobeni, 15. Pfumbidzai, 3. Mahashe, 10. Mabena, 5. Kobedi, 18. Mashikinya, 50. Masuku, 21. Letsoalo.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 11. Potsane, 20. De Jongh, 12. Maema, 25. Ndwandwe, 4. Mereko, 8. Phalane, 27. Tchilimbou, 17. Mofokeng.
